  • Beautiful home, gracious host. We'd go back there in a heartbeat.

  • Paul was a great host! He was very responsive to emails and the house was above and beyond what we expected. It was the perfect getaway we were looking for. Pictures don't do the backyard justice. My mother described it as a "fairy tale garden". :)

  • A fantastic home in a beautiful location. The accommodations exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend for anyone interested in the beauty of the Occidental/Russian River area.

    Paul was extremely helpful throughout the process and everything was better than advertised.

About
Musician and Semi-Retired Mechanical Engineer, cyclist. I love to ride my road bike through beautiful Sonoma County, and my mountain bike too. I play guitar and a little keyboard. I love my vacation rental house; I built it for myself and it is special to me. I want others to enjoy it since I'm not currently living there. The location is in the heart of the beautiful, redwood-forested, artistic west county, close to the ocean, Russian River and wineries.
